IATA: “The slowdown in international air travel in the past 3-4 months has closely followed the decline in business confidence, but there is considerable regional variation. Recent falls of business confidence in a number of major economies suggests that growth in air travel and freight is likely to slow further in the next few months.” Source: Company statement, 30-Aug-2012.
